Reflection: Student Feedback Peer Review Preparation - Section 2: Structured Note-taking: Review of Peer Essays


The students today seemed very focused, and also seemed to really enjoy reading each others' work.  The development of this class culture of peer respect and academic focus has really shown in the past few weeks leading up to the exam--they are focused and supporting each other as they go into the exam (they actually ordered head bands with a rhetorical triangle on the front that they all plan to wear during the exam--and of course I am required to wear one, too!).  I didn't have to do a whole lot today except share documents with them and deal with computer issues--they got right to business!  The feedback they are wrote on their peer review sheets seems very focused, too, so I think tomorrow will be a very good day of peer review.

Finally, I'm really looking forward to reading their essays!
